Waiting for biopsy results may adversely affect health

I would be willing to bet that these results could be duplicated waiting for any test results.  The stress of not knowing, of being put off, needs to be emphasized to clinicians who have a nasty habit of saying, “They’ll have the results of the test in a week or so” just because it’s standard operating procedure and not because it takes that long to get the results. 
 
Print this study out and show it to your doc and technicians-after all, it’s your health at stake and decreasing stress will only help the you heal and deal more effectively with any illness or treatments you may have.
